Joan´s Mad Scene, 1962 Part 2

Joan´s Mad Scene, 1962 Part 2

I´ll never know how to thank Coloraturafan2 enough for this video. This is Lucia´s mad scene from 1962, a year after her big debut at the Met. I remember reading that Franco Zeffirelli didn´t know what to do with Lucia´s character during the flute solo, until one day, in rehearsals, Joan started to look around her while singing, and… Eureka! Franco had the perfect idea for one of the most thrilling moments in this amazing opera.

In the early 1960s, the Australian soprano Joan Sutherland emerged as an opera star of the first magnitude, setting new standards of vocal excellence in the bel canto repertoire that have yet to be matched. Fortunately, Miss Sutherland’s American career included numerous television appearances. The earliest of these telecasts marked Miss Sutherland’s American television debut, less than a month after her New York debut (in a concertperformance of Bellini’s Beatrice di Tenda) and well before her Metropolitan Opera debut (as Lucia, on November 26, 1961). Here Dame Joan sings the Mad Scene from Lucia di Lammermoor.
